Overall the experience was very good. However we thought it could have been better planned by Tripfactory and the Local travel agency.

Monday 16th May - flight was from Chennai in the afternoon, reached Portblair at 3pm, then rest of the evening at Portblair Jail with light show. This day was Ordinary, since we didn't like the Jail and the lighting show. You can create a package without this jail and lighting show since lot of people go to andaman just to see the beaches.

Tuesday 17th May - Delayed boat to neil island. So Lost couple of hours due to which we didn't get Lunch in the Neil island hotel since we reached the hotel by around 3pm only. From 3pm onwards in Neil island Laxmanpur beach - This was worth it, very good.

Wednesday 18th May - Exploring Neil Island in the morning - Visited Bharatpur beach, Paid extra for the water sport as it wasn't in the itinary, and visited Sitapur beach and natural coral bridge in 3 hours - So it was all touch and go, didn't get enough time to relax in the beach. Afternoon transfer to Eldorado hotel in Havelock. Could have included more time for each of the beaches or add a water sport in the itinery.

Thursday 19th May - Breakfast at El Dorado Hotel was not good enough, explored Elephant beach with speed boat n snorkelling which was awsome and got enough time, Watersport snorkelling was included in the itinery but we had to pay extra to spent more time exploring the corals. In the evening we spent lot of time In Kalapathar beach which was not good enough. All in all Very good but Kalapathar beach could have been avoided.
Friday 20th May: Breakfast again was not good, same as the previous day. Explored Radhanagar beach but spent very less time there. This is the best beach of Andaman. we spent there from 11:30a.m. to 1:30p.m. only because cab arrived at 11 am only and dropped back for return journey at jetty at 2pm which was very early for the return boat trip - 2 hours before departure of ship, 1 hour before check in. If cab had come very early like 8:30 a.m., we would have got more time at Radhanagar Beach. Returned to Portblair hotel in the afternoon, nothing in the itinery for the rest of the evening.

Saturday 21st May: Board back to Chennai from Portblair in the afternoon. Nothing in the itinery for the morning which is fine as this was 5 night trip.

Overall Rating: 4/5
